Well, my father and I both made our deadlines. He made the tree, and I got the fabric bins done. Although I still have to do something about the numbers - so if December 1st is tomorrow, the tree is basically ready - oh wait, it IS tomorrow! It's not like I've never stayed up late craftin' it out. So, here is the ALMOST finished Advent Calendar.
One of my goals with this project was to use up some of the cute Christmas fabric I've been holding on to. It's going to be fun taking this bad boy out every Holiday, and I know my kids will have fun remembering all the fabrics I used - er I mean the goodies they got each morning.
My father claims every cubby space is the same size...
Now it's time to get creative filling the bins!
Ok ok, so I have a few more finishing touches, but I am very excited about this tradition. My sisters and I had an "advent fairy" stirring up excitement every December, and it's something we'll never forget.
